BANGKOK – A driver has captured the moment a suspected meteor streaked through the sky over a road in Bangkok.

The video, which was reportedly filmed in the Thai capital at about 8.35pm local time on Monday, shows the sky light up as the large greenish object flashes overhead.

The Thai Astronomical Society stated on its Facebook page that the shooting star seen from Bangkok could be identified as a fireball, given its brightness. The society added that it did not appear to be posing any risks.In early September a similar-looking meteor lit up the skies in Bangkok and was captured on several dash cams.The fireball was spotted in many provinces in Thailand, including those adjacent to Bangkok such as Nonthaburi and Samut Prakan, as well as Chonburi, local broadcaster Thai PBS reported. There were also reports of similar sightings in Poland and New York
